On Friday afternoon, Florida State forward RaiQuan Gray announced that he is declaring for the NBA Draft. A two-year starter, Gray was an integral piece for some of the most successful teams in school history.

“Thank you to Seminole nation for a memorable 3 seasons! We have some of the best fans in the nation! You guys never failed to pack out the Tuck I will forever be Seminole!” Gray said when he posted the decision on his social media today.

For his career, Gray scored 611 points across 90 games during his three seasons in the garnet and gold. He started 52 games for Leonard Hamilton’s Seminoles. Gray helped guide FSU to one regular season ACC Championship and two NCAA Tournament Sweet 16’s.

Gray flashed an all-around game at FSU that has NBA franchises very excited. He grabbed 264 boards and dished out 122 assists during his career. This season, Gray averaged 11.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

He was selected as Third Team All-ACC in 2020-21. On Feb. 13 against Wake Forest, he had a career-high 24 points, 12 rebounds, and 4 assists.

While Gray has entered his name into the draft, he is not locked into the decision for a few more months. This season, early entry college players can withdraw from the NBA Draft as late as Monday, Jul. 19 at 5:00 p.m.
